Chapter 44: Strange
All through the day’s travels, Kagome kept a covert eye on Sesshoumaru’s stripes, which rippled through colors only she could see. Someone would say something, right? Miroku had sharp eyes. Sango wouldn’t hesitate. Shippo would probably make fun.
Only Kohaku, who brought up the rear with Kirara on his shoulder, seemed to be keeping as close an eye on Sesshoumaru.
Letting her steps lag, Kagome joined him. Now, how did you ask someone if they shared your crazy?
“Kohaku-kun, does Sesshoumaru-sama seem strange to you?”
A shy glance. A strained smile. Kohaku quietly asked, “Do I seem strange to you?”
